    A NOS made in 2006 based on a 1950's tin plane made by Shurco. A thousand were made for each airline that used this particular plane though I am not sure whether that includes the remake. What is equally spectacular about the plane is the box. The plane's wings are not separate so the box is big. Box is enclosed by a sleeve with similar graphics. Plastic cover inside box protects plane formed to aircraft's dimensions and shape. Originally this was made for Lufthansa for distribution to suppliers, customers, exec's....not sure. It is an Electro 5600 Radiant made by Vickers ( the actual plane). This plane is spotless..comes with instructions...2 D cell batteries required...props start up separately and power up and down..plane rolls forward in a straight line or can be steered...has nose light and wing lights... its history and reason for being made ( the toy ) is still a mystery.

      These were awesome toys.
      There is no mystery why they were made ... to make money. That was true the first time around and with the reissues.
